Filling God's Gaps

Have you ever waited a long time for the Lord to answer a prayer? Has the gap between His promise and its fulfillment ever been so long that you tried to “help God out” in some way? In this message, Dr. Stanley teaches about the dangers of growing impatient with God’s schedule and trying to make something happen on our own. Using the story of Abraham and Ishmael, he explains how we only make matters worse when we interfere with God’s plans and may even create problems that can never be fully remedied. Learn how to patiently endure seasons of unanswered prayer and experience the Father’s best when it finally comes.
